    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Protiviti (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Everyone was extremely friendly throughout the entire process. I got my first round interview from my school's career fair and interviewed the next day. The interview is split into behavioral and case. The behavioral felt much more like a conversation than an interview, which I really appreciated. The case was very basic, centered mostly on controls. They gave me a process map the night before, so I spent 30 minutes analyzing it before going in. The case is also pretty guided, so if you're missing something or not exactly on the right track, they will point you in the right direction. The final round interviews were in the office. All candidates stayed in a hotel and went to a dinner the night before the office visit. The second day is very laid-back and fun. I got to meet many other potential interns and other employees. Near the end I had a 15 minute conversation with a Managing Director, which again was very much like a convesation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Protiviti.

    Interview

    After being asked to come into the office for a second-round interview, I received a schedule breakdown which included three different interviews with three managers in the office as well as two other get-to-know-you meetings with some other members of the team all of which were scheduled over a few hours. Then, the day before the interview, I received the beginnings of a case study that was extrapolated upon in one of the interviews. Overall, everyone I met was so welcoming and friendly, and they all seemed to really care what I had to say. I'm really excited about working here this summer.

    Technology Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Protiviti (Irvine, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Both interviewers were really nice. However very misleading. They both told me I did fantastically yet I was rejected... They were very impressed with me on the case study so I literally have no idea where this went wrong. I thought it was a great interview before I saw the rejection.... So just be aware their extensive positive feedback is fake...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (Tampa, FL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied at my University's career fair and got selected for an interview within three days. The first interview was on campus and consisted of two parts: a thirty-minute case interview and a thirty-minute behavioral interview. The case interview consisted of mitigating risks in a process. The behavioral interview consisted of typical behavioral questions with a focus on working with teams. Within a week I was invited back for a second round interview. This interview was in the office and consisted of a presentation where you sell Protiviti to a client along with a couple of talks with upper management. The second part of the interview process could have been more transparent. Following the interview, I asked for an update. My update question was completely glossed over and I received a rejection letter a week later. Also, this company preaches diversity, but the office I visited was not diverse.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti in February 2018.

    Interview

    There was an over the phone, casual, 30 minute interview with a recruiter. By the end of the conversation the recruiter had let me know that they wanted to schedule an office visit for me to meet the staff and do a 3 part interview. One part behavioral, one case study, and one casual interview that was geared more towards asking questions. The case study materials are given to you the day before the interview and it went much smoother than I expected. I had never done a case study in an interview before but so long as you look over the case and think about possible risks and solutions you will be fine. Overall it was a great interview process, I really enjoyed the case interview and Protiviti seems to employ overall great people who are easy to talk to and very approachable.

    Internal Audit - Tech Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (Chicago, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    We had a pre-interview dinner in Chicago on Thursday night and met some of the interviewers, fellow candidates, and HR managers. The next day, we spent the day Friday learning about the company during the office visit. There were panel discussions, team activities, etc. There was a 30 minute behavioral interview and a 30 minute case study interview. The HR manager sent a brief of the case interview information the night before, so I spent Thursday night in the hotel preparing for it. The case included improving a pricing process from corporate to franchise for a fictitious company. Both interview experiences were pleasant and relaxed.
